Global Star Agency, United Asia Management

This April, six major Korean talent management agencies joined forces to launch the Asian management agency, UAM (United Asia Management). With ‘Hallyu’ or better known as the ‘Korean Wave’ becoming a significant factor in Asia’s Entertainment businesses such as KEYEAST, AM Entertainment, Star J Entertainment, SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment all came together to create a joint investment corporation called “UAM”, an international talent agency with the purpose of strengthening the foundations of ‘Hallyu’, promoting collaborative exchange and establishing an efficient casting system.

The main operations will focus on overseeing the portrait rights of all talents managed by the six agencies and intellectual rights as well as establishing an efficient talent database. Most of the talents managed by the six agencies and members of UAM have successfully become a significant force in the Asian market, making their mark as key figures of the Korean Wave. To name a few: AM Entertainment’s Jang Dong-gun; KEYEAST’s Bae Yong-joon, Kim Hyun-joong, Choi Kang-hee, Lee Ji-ah; SM Entertainment’s TVXQ, Girls’ Generation, Super Junior; YG Entertainment’s Big Bang, 2NE1, Se7en; JYP Entertainment’s Rain, Wonder Girls, 2PM. UAM is opening its doors to all artists Korean or non-Korean who are currently active or willing to enter the Asian entertainment market with a vision to go beyond the Korean Wave and create an ‘Asian Wave’. CEO of UAM and Star J Entertainment, JEONG Young-bum states the role of UAM, “Our goal is not limited to Korea but spreads out to Asia. Creating an efficient system is fundamental to achieve this”. He adds that UAM can “Pave the way for other major Asian talent agencies not only from the US but also from other Asian regions including China, Japan, Singapore and Malaysia”.

On the other hand, some have expressed concern that this ‘mega-scaled’ collaboration among local major talent agencies might only put more pressure on broadcasting companies and distributors in Korea….

  1. i wish all of them sucess.. coz their are so many Agencies out their and alot of them will put their harworking and goal to all their suceed and it it good for each of them show much entertinment beyoung an intertional for each of them just hoping them can bring much music perfrom ect… i would love them to sucees in how any way their work thair goal up !! and i wish they can gain some popuairy too GOOD LUCK!


  2. Yes!!! Start working hard UAM so we can finally have new ways of entertainment and variety in this side of the ocean. Why people are still affraid of knowing other cultures? We are living a new age of comunications with the Internet, Twitter, Facebook but we are still holding ourself of really knowing how other people live, think and feel. I wish they have a HUGE success so we can have access to new performers, new stories and new music. We need fresh air in the entertainment business of US and Latin America.


  3. I wish them much success. There’s a lot of talent spread across the various agencies, and it makes sense to try and work together for the common goal. 🙂


  4. i sure wish them a lot of success….and this may be the best way to go. they seem to be planning something that is not readily offered here in the US…(aside from what the entertainment industry picks and chooses for us). now if this new agency includes diversity and internationalism, this is really going to be a first and i really feel it is time, way past time. on occassion when i do watch what’s going on in the Eastern part of this world, i feel like the viewing audiance is being left out and even at times manipulated with what can and cannot be watch. (i find myself muttering “sh*t if our money is good enough to globalize, we ought to be able to enjoy global entertainment)..makes me angry sometimes. so hey, i hope this venture is successful.
